Raptors To Shop Bargnani Aggressively

Masai Ujiri has barely had a chance to change the nameplate on his desk, but he already knows what his first order of business will be as Raptors GM.  The club will look to shop big man Andrea Bargnani everywhere possible in order to move him before July 1st, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com (via Twitter).

This is hardly the first time that the Raptors have been keen on trading Bargnani, but finding a trade that brings back a decent return has proved challenging for them in the past.  The Italian forward is set to make $11MM next season and $12MM in 2014/15.  

The former No. 1 overall pick has been beset by the injury bug and has often times looked out of place in the Raptors’ offense.  This past season he averaged just 12.7 PPG and 3.7 RPG in 35 games.

Trade him to Milwaukee for Jennings since Jennings wants to leave Milwaukee so bad anyways. I bet Jennings will start crying wishing his butt was still in Milwaukee then.It will teach him a lesson to keep his mouth shut then.

He has got to be the least popular basketball player in the league (at least if you exclude players who “abandoned” their team, and their former team is mad at them)
